Default Re: Tavern Fun Time: Alcohol, Drinking, Intoxication, and After Effects

I am thrilled to hear that the rules came in handy. Thank you so much for sharing!

I have tried to refine the rules a bit here and there, such as allowing a -1D6 for drinking whle eating, assuming a character eats enough to delay alcohol absorbtion by the body.

I also added Movement Allowance penalties to some of the failed saving throw results and changed the saving throws for movement a bit, trying to find some way to approxmiate staggering around drunk while possibly falling flat on your face the farther you attempt to move.

By the way, I hope your son is doing better after his cycling accident. Best wishes for health and hope!
